Product Description

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

CoQHis found in every cell in the body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells. CoQ10 exists inside small organelles of the cell called mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell, where it is a vital step in energy production. In humans, the manufacture of energy takes place predominantly in the mitochondria. In fact, the mitochondria are responsible for the production of nearly 95% of the energy your body needs for development, growth and robust metabolism. Without CoQ10 the cells will degenerate and die from a lack of energy. Other essential nutrients to power the mitochondria and produce ATP (the storage molecule of cellular energy) include magnesium, B complex vitamins and amino acids called carnitines (acetyl carnitine and L-carnitine). These nutrients are highly synergistic with CoQ10 for energy production and increased health.


A helpful way to recall the function of CoQ10 in the cell is to think about how a spark plug works in an engine -- it ignites a mixture of gas and oxygen to produce energy. Since CoQ10 is a critical step in the cell's manufacture of energy, it is no wonder that the highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the heart, immune system, liver and kidneys.

CoQ10 also functions as a powerful antioxidant, which means that it protects cell membranes against damage by free radicals. As we age, free radical levels increase and they cause damage to our cells and accelerate inflammation by causing more free radical production in a vicious cycle. Numerous medical and science journal studies have discovered CoQ10 to be a safe, essential nutrient for protecting us against free radical damage and promoting healthy heart, brain, immune and nerve function.

Why is COQ10 necessary?

Coenzyme Q10 is beneficial for heart health in many ways. It is essential in preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, helps assure circulatory health, and supports optimal functioning of the heart muscle. CoQ10 also supports the health of blood vessel walls by preventing the oxidation of vessel wall proteins and fatty acids throughout our circulatory system. In addition, CoQ10 has been used in clinical trials in reducing the number and severity of headaches, and improving sperm motility in men.

In the diet, CoQ10 exists in tiny amounts in meat, poultry and fish but the amount provided is typically only 2 -- 5 mg per day. The body's primary source of CoQ10 is the supply it produces naturally but this supply diminishes as we age. As we get older, supplementation with CoQ10 becomes critically important. In the past dosages of 5 -- 50 mg were common but the most recent studies indicate 100 -- 1,200 mg per day is optimal depending of your age, goals and other factors. DrVita One Daily and Six Daily multivitamins contain 100 mg or about 20 -- 50 times more than your diet provides. Most multivitamins contain zero amounts of CoQ10. If you or a family member have cardiovascular or neurological health concerns, the most recent studies indicate 400 mg. to 1,200 mg. per day is optimal.

Unfortunately, the most commonly prescribed cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) are known to inhibit the body's natural production of CoQ10, and this is why supplementation is highly recommended for statin users to help replenish CoQ10 levels. Statin drugs target and inhibit a key enzyme, HMG Co-A-reductase, that is vital for CoQ10 production. A dosage of 200 -- 600 mg CoQ10 per day is recommended to overcome this deficiency. DrVita CoQ10 daily supplements can help maintain and restore optimal CoQ10 levels to help support healthy heart, brain, immune function and cellular energy production.* DrVita CoQ10 is 100% natural - made from a natural fermentation process and this type of CoQ10 is far superior to synthetic CoQ10. Further, DrVita uses 100% natural capsules and softgels with zero artificial colors and chemicals. These combined with the natural form of CoQ10 provide high absorption and optimal benefits. BEWARE of many brands because they are using an artificial chemical called titanium dioxide to color their tablets and softgels. DrVita has banned this chemical from their products and our scientists and doctors believe it is not safe based on certain evidence. "Titanium dioxide has recently been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen ''possibly carcinogen to humans''... This evidence showed that high concentrations of pigment-grade (powdered) and ultrafine titanium dioxide dust caused respiratory tract cancer in rats exposed by inhalation and intratracheal instillation"
